The cost of the sponsorship will be $150. Sign up on the event page!

We look forward to having you at our next meeting.


Our keystone event, the Annual Charity Golf Tournament, at end of February was AMAZING. Thank you to all the golfers, volunteers, sponsors, and supporters for a great time and kudos to Bill Dust and the GT Committee; your hard work shined!

Our next keystone event will be the Annual FPE Symposium in the fall for which planning is beginning.

This season is the anniversary of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire, a significant fire that still haunts us. One of my favorite fire books is Triangle: The Fire That Changed America  by David von Drehle. The building still stands today; it’s currently the NYU Brown Building of Biology and Chemistry. On a visit to NYC, I had to go see it.

We look forward to seeing you at our monthly meetings and special events.

Are you creative? Have ideas? Like logistics / planning? We’re looking for you! Contact any Board member  or me directly.

Thank you,

Jeff Halpert
